Detroit Hip-Hop

While most are familiar with Detroit artists like Eminem and D12. The underground scene in Detroit has been alive and well for years. Groups such as Slum Village and artists who battled their way to the top like Ro Spit, Danny Brown and Elzhi; have kept the scene vibrant. Let's not forget one of the greatest hip-hop producers ever Jay Dilla (R.I.P.) According to his obituary at NPR.org, he "was one of the music industry's most influential hip-hop artists, working for big-name acts like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes and Common."


My favorite Detroit, via Ann Arbor, hip-hop DJ is DJ Graffiti. His sweet souled out mixes are bliss to my ears. Check out tunes from Ro Spit, Elzhi and Danny Brown, Jay Dilla and a DJ Graffiti mix after the jump.
